It depends on the rest of your setup, and what your build is lacking. It might be helpful to list the rest of your gear.

what i have now is:
2skill 20fcr helm
2skill 10fcr ammy
hoto
magefist
arach
paladin spirit (35fcr)
silkweave
2soj

i might have too much fcr, 145 now, so whats the suggest of remove one items with fcr, helm, ammy or glove? what should i use then? or use 1fcr ring?

and whats the best merc and merc gear for a pvp hammerdin?

ty.

F* the shael. Either Um or Jah. I'd go Um if you're ladder and not very rich though it seems u can afford top gear. And yes you do have too much fcr. 125 is the breakpoint for 9 frames cast.

shael is useless, charge is > any stun lock imo
um is useless, though stacked resist never hurt, my hammerdin has at least 30 over without the um.

my suggestion is ber. most hammerdins are stuck with 18% dr (From shako + enigma) your not even using shako so the extra dr will help.

ty, i think i will choose ber,
3 pskull + soj + 1 soc rare diadem = 2 soc rare diadem, right?

and any suggestion on changes in fcr?

That is incorrect, AFAIK. Are you refering to the cube recipe, below?

3 Perfect Skulls + 1 Rare Item + Stone of Jordan = Add 1 Socket To a Rare Item

I'm failry certain that unless a rare spawns w/ 2 sockets, there is no way to add a second socket to such an item.

Yep, the man's right. If you could just add sockets to a rare with SoJs everyone would stop using Runewords! Nice setup for the Hammerdin, though - very premium equip. :thumbsup:

And since you've gone overboard on FCR, why not swap out the magefists for a nice pair of Frosties? The mana would be gravy!
